As demand grows for ubiquitous wireless connectivity and the promise of new and previously unimagined applications – such as autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, telemedicine and virtual reality – so does the anticipation for 5G. 5G will be revolutionary, delivering higher data throughput, extremely low latency and speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G. As a result, 5G is moving toward commercial reality faster than many expected.

Why we need a new approach to network energy efficiency

Article | March 11, 2020

Our recent report about breaking the energy curve offers a blueprint for service providers to evolve their networks towards nationwide 5G while lowering energy consumption. In doing so, service providers can achieve something which historically has never happened before. They can finally break the network energy curve. Today’s mobile networks already consume a considerable amount of energy at a global energy cost of USD 25 billion. As we move ahead into 5G, the energy stakes look set to get even higher.

FUTURE-PROOFING 5G ARCHITECTURE WITH OPEN-RAN

Article | May 19, 2021

The RAN (Radio Access Network) architecture for mobile networks includes a remote radio unit (RRU) located at the top of a cell tower, which communicates with a baseband unit (BBU) at the base of the tower. The hardware and communication interfaces are owned by a specific vendor, and its software-driven functionality is tightly coupled within the hardware. Traditionally, this has worked well for mobile network operators (MNOs). However, there are several drawbacks to consider – for instance, upgrading or changing the wireless network demands physical hardware replacements throughout the network, which is cost-inefficient, labor-intensive, and time-consuming. Furthermore, the equipment and interfaces that connect the hardware are owned by the vendors that originally supplied them, which locks MNOs into existing relationships with them.

Recognizing Virtual Meeting Fatigue and What You Can Do About It

Article | May 20, 2021

I’m a new-ish remote worker and, although I love 99% of everything associated with it, lately, after every virtual meeting I have, I’m feeling exhausted and drained. And not in the normal, everyday work exhausted and drained kind of way. It’s a peculiar combination of eye strain, headaches, and general malaise that I really only experience after a long day of virtual meetings. I was curious if others were feeling the same so I did a completely non-scientific study of my remote work friends to see how they’ve been feeling. Turns out, I’m not alone. Workers everywhere are going through a huge transition as the work from anywhere model has accelerated at breakneck speed since the pandemic. Although some parts of the world are slowly returning to a new normal, many employers, including Tangoe, have made the decision to keep the work from anywhere model while some organizations are electing to use a hybrid model of partly remote, partly in-office.

What's New In 5G - May 2021

Article | May 5, 2021

The next-generation of wireless technologies - known as 5G - is here. Not only is it expected to offer network speeds that are up to 100 times faster than 4G LTE and reduce latency to nearly zero, it will allow networks to handle 100 times the number of connected devices, revolutionizing business and consumer connectivity and enabling the "Internet of Things." Leading policymakers - federal regulators and legislators - are making it a top priority to ensure that the wireless industry has the tools it needs to maintain U.S. leadership in commercial 5G deployments. This blog provides monthly updates on FCC actions and Congressional efforts to win the race to 5G.
